  1. Not true at all. It's pretty much inarguable that this proposal is meant to shovel money at high income households in blue states. Even the uber-lib NYT recognizes this plain fact. Pelosi and Schumer are failing nearly as hard as the other side in addressing this crisis. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/30/business/economy/coronavirus-economic-stimulus-taxes.html
  2. The China derangement syndrome has been fun to watch unfold, particularly in the DT thread. These people can't seem to deal with the fact that the US' response to the pandemic has been a world class embarrassment and thus need to channel that humiliation into scapegoating China.
  3. Thank God they're going to reform the SALT cap or we'd be in real trouble.
  4. Stacey is at least honest about being in this for no reason other than making money. https://www.thecut.com/2019/03/stacey-abrams-whats-next.html
  5. This show is great. So much better than Westworld.
  6. The Platform - boring as hell. Pain and Glory - delightful.
  7. Using slave labor to dig mass graves in NYC. Now this is bold leadership. https://theintercept.com/2020/03/31/rikers-island-coronavirus-mass-graves/
  8. What of the below do you take issue with? https://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxvox/high-income-households-would-benefit-most-repeal-salt-deduction-cap
  9. I assure you some poor family farmers get fucked by federal estate taxes but you'd being a fucking rube to believe efforts to reform/repeal estate taxes are done so on their behalf. Don't be a rube, jimmyjazz.
  10. I would agree with this and its illustrative of who her real constituents are (wealthy Californians), which is the problem.
  11. How do you tailor action on SALT to focus benefits on middle class earners when a total repeal of SALT would provide hardly any benefit whatsoever to people making less than $500K a year? Is the action tailored so that people making $50K to $100K save a few bucks while higher earners don't save any additional money? Whoopy fucking doo. This is reminiscent of how Republicans try to frame the debate over the "death tax" as primarily affecting small farmers.
  12. You don't think it's funny that the top-ranking congressional dem proposed a rollback of SALT (something that would almost entirely be to the benefit of the rich) as a way to get more money into the hands of individuals? That's pretty fucking funny.
  13. Just because Ben is a shameless grifter doesn't mean that he was not, at least at some point in his life, exceptionally skilled in his field. The guy was director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins.
